Sometimes, when we go to museums we don’t really know some words, people or facts. So, we cannot understand the exhibits, we get tired and we leave.
However, we are here to change that!
Clio Muse is an application for visitors connecting cultural institutions with their visitors. It shares unique intriguing stories for selected exhibits. You can use the application within the exhibition as a tour guide or from anywhere else so that you can prepare your visit or learn more afterwards.
Visitors can choose the amount of information they will read, see or listen for each exhibit, vote for their favourite exhibits or stories. They can play interactive games and share their experience with their friends via their social networks.
At the same time, cultural institutions can process visitors’ statistics, learn their opinion and design their exhibitions accordingly. They can also share new stories for the same exhibits re-inviting and engaging with their visitors again and again.

FUTURE PLANS - AMBITION
On 13th February 2014 we will present for the first time to the public Clio Muse in the Athens City Museum - Vouros-Eutaxias Foundation.
Our ambition is to change the way we see the exhibits, to let go of technical details and connect emotionally with them. We would like the visitors to think “Clio Muse” when they think of museums.
CRISIS AS A MOTIVATION
The greek recession has forced most people to look for improvements in our daily life. We see more and more people of all ages suggesting solutions to everyday seemingly minor problems, which if somehow all were corrected they could improve our everyday life on the whole.
